Readers may soon be hearing more about Myriam Gurba. She’s building strong social media platforms to communicate with readers of her essays and memoir Mean about growing up gay and Chicana in Santa Maria and dealing with the trauma of being sexually assaulted there during summer break from the University of California. On paper, online, and on TV she delivers barbs against irritating writers, violent men, and a society she feels has been unjust. Whether or not readers agree with her opinions, Gurba entertains with a deft literary touch.
